Am I the only person who is usually disappointed with the movie?
I will read a book, love it, discover there is a movie or one about to come out, then I will be disappointed with the outcome. There are a few though which I have really enjoyed. The one I have chosen, I actually did the other way round. I watched the movie and then read the book.

This book was first published in 1982 and adapted into a movie in 2011.
The horrors of the First World War are exposed in this uplifting tale through the adventures of a young farm horse called Joey.
I am not really a person who seeks out animal themed books or movies so i was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. There are parts of this story that are really moving. Following on from yesterdays challenge, I think I may have shed a tear.
What stood out to me though, was the role animals played in wars, especially World War 1. While I have always been aware of their use in war, I had never really thought about how frightened those horses were going into battle and the dangers they faced.
This story is definitely worth a read, a watch or both. One day I hope to see the stage production.
